AUSA 2016: Elbit Systems Features Advanced Tech

Elbit Systems of America (ESA) on booth #1139 showcases its advanced technologies and discusses the advantages of these innovative solutions for today’s soldiers. 

ESA is committed to providing our nation’s Army innovative systems and technologies designed to increase mission effectiveness and provide the necessary lethality, flexibility and protection required for multi-domain operations,Raanan Horowitz, president and chief executive officer at Elbit Systems of America, commented. ”By working closely with users and combat developers we are supporting the Army’s goal of accelerating introduction of these capabilities into the force.”

Teaming with customers, agency partners, and industry, ESS produces advanced systems designed to outmatch enemies in an Anti-Access/Area Denial (A2/AD) encounter and to ensure the safety of soldiers as they battle in complex environments. Several of these technological solutions, from precision targeting and, networking communications to guided mortar systems, are showcased at this year’s AUSA.

ESA showcases its family of advanced targeting systems, including the Common Laser Range Finder-Integrated Capability (CLRF-IC) and Enhanced Joint Terminal Attack Controller Laser Target Designator (EJTAC LTD). The CLRF-IF and EJTAC LTD are the results of ESA’s focused R&D effort for advancing handheld targeting technologies and tactical laser based systems to improve engagement accuracy and enhance communications between the sensor to shooter.

As one of the US Army’s leading mortar systems providers, ESS highlights its FIRECON mortar system, which is engineered for improved lethality and added force protection for deployed troops. FIRECON, an automated digital application, delivers improvements in indirect fire lethality by employing faster deployment and greater responsiveness. When coupled with Elbit Systems of America’s family of advanced laser and multi-mode seekers, mortar systems can become an even more effective capability, providing deployable range and precision to ground forces.
